How it works
Gather your friends, form a team and solve exciting logic or physical challenges in themed prison cells. Play amongst yourselves or choose to compete against other teams, the choice is yours - all that matters, is that you can escape the island.
Assemble your team and think of a team name. Teams must be 2 to 4 players and aged five years or above.
Present your team to the prison guard. You’ll be given a team tag which is your key to each cell.
Explore the different cells – there are over 25 to choose from. You can play each cell as many times as you wish.
The skills required for each room are displayed outside along with the points you can collect from the room.
Prison Island is the perfect group activity for 10 to 80 people. Split your group into teams of 4, and take on our exciting challenges, competing for the high score.
Your chance to beat the boss as well as our bars. Conference room also available to hire during off peak times. Contact us for prices.
Children’s Birthday Parties:
With free drinks and snacks, birthday invites, gifts for the birthday child and an extra long session of game time, Prison Island is the perfect way to celebrate that special day.
Stag and Hen dos:
Prepare for the big day with the ultimate team challenge, located conveniently on the High Street with easy access to Maidstone’s top nightlife.
(Please note your group will be split into groups of 4 where available.)
Q1. How many players can I have?
Prison Island can currently cater for up to 80 people at a time. You will be split into smaller teams of up to 4 players.
Q2. Can more than 4 play in the same team?
Due to the nature of the rooms 4 is the maximum we can take in a team. For bigger groups we will split you into 2 teams, adding an incredible element of competition.
Q3. How many games can I play?
We currently have 25 different cells, each with a unique and exciting game. When you book with us you will have access to all of our cells.
Q4. How many times can I play each game?
You can play each game as many times as you like within your booking time. Take on the same game multiple times to try and beat a previous score.
Q5. How long will my experience last?
Our minimum time slots are one hour, but we recommend 90 minutes for the perfect Prison Island experience.
Q6. How long does each game take?
We estimate each game takes between 1-5 minutes, although this may vary.
Q7. What if another team is in the game I want to play?
If a cell is in use you will see a red notification light outside. Once the cell is available again the light will turn green allowing you to enter.
Q8. Is there an age restriction?
No, although we recommend a minimum age of 8 for our players.
Q9. Can I play if I'm pregnant?
Our activities range in type, and whilst some are not suitable for those who are pregnant we feel that there is more than enough for a pregnant person to participate in.
Q10. Will my team be the only ones playing?
Prison Island can take up to 20 teams at a time. Whilst it is likely that there will be other teams playing, each team will be in their own cell and you will only see other teams as you cross in the corridors or waiting area.
